A Quiet Writer’s Retreat near the Ashokan Reservoir, $60,000

Got $60,000 burning a hole in your pocket? Who doesn’t? Well, if we did and found ourselves in the market for a hidden writer’s shack out in the Catskills, we would take a closer look at this 460 square footer on over an acre of land just minutes from the Ashokan Reservoir.

The layout is pretty simple: One bedroom, one bath, a common area, and a small kitchen. Also includes a front porch for early morning reveries over hot coffee. That’s all you need, really, to do some distraction-free creating in an environment known for its conduciveness to creative pursuits. Includes updated heating system, hot water heater, UV water filtration system, and insulation replaced within past two years.

Need to see people every now and then? A short drive will take you to Kingston, Woodstock, New Paltz, and historic Stone Ridge. Located less than 2 hours from NYC.
